No timetable set for return of Michael Bourn
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Terry Francona has provided no timetable for the return of Indians center fielder Michael Bourn, who has been out nearly three weeks with a strained left hamstring.

"When he's ready to play, he's ready to play," Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Bourn has proven disappointing again after signing a free agent contract in 2013. Extensive hamstring problems have played a role in him being limited to seven stolen bases. His .267/.316/.379 stat line is nearly identical to the one he compiled a year ago.
